tlrand Porks, July 9.���The 0, P. It-

Andrew Thompson, the aerial artist

io his proposed flying machine ascension, Mr. Thompson in an Interview
with your correspondent said: "Yes,
lhe (lying machine Is all right. I am
working steadily on it at Cascade, but
now I nm delayed on account of having
to wall for some of the steel frame,
work which will have lo be made by
Ihe Grand Forks Steel Structural
Works. As soon ns they turn out tills

mte, I fully expect to be aide to make

within one month's time. There is no
doubt about it working satisfactorily,
for I made nn ascension some three
years ago in one ot the same design.
I went 800 feet high, and 11 worked all

The following paragraphs show
how the newspapers of the prairie
provinces fall upon each other In
Iheir discussion or political issues,
aud incidentally explains how up-
to-date and wide-awake a newspaper can be. "Tbe West," a weekly paper published in Regina, says
"Ten,years ago, on the 3rd of
June, the Liberal government was
returned to power at Ottawa.
"In commenting on the tenth
anniversary, the Edmonton Bulletin recently enumerated amon<s
the things done by the Laurier
" 'Made the postolBce depart,
ment pay.'
"Even If Ihey have made that
department pay, we cannot see
that they have done anything to
be i in mil of. Is the postal depart-
ment to be allied with tbe customs
department for revenue-producing
purposes'.' We do not think that
the proper administration of the
postal department demands, and
we arc safe In saying that what
the people expect, Is not revenue
from this department, but proficient service.
"If the present government lias
made the iKistofflce department
pay, they have done It at the expense of the service, us every village, town an.I dry of the west
will testify.
"If the people approve of the
present government's administration ol this department, why are
the Liberal papers throughout Ihe
country Joining wllh the opi��si-
tion tu crying out against tho l
abominable service?
"Take ihe staff of any city ofllce lu the wesl and look them
over. They are invariably underpaid, and iio per cent, of them are
absolutely incompetent
"Vei this is what we are asked
to applaud on the tenth anniversary of tbe Laurler government.
"The citizens of Regina are not
making any demonstration over
the successful administration of i
the postal service, and we do not
think that Edmonton has anything
lo be proud of In this respect. In
perusiug the report of the recent
boards of trade convention held
there, we lind as follows respecting the postal service resolution:
"'Speaking to the adoption of
this resolution, W. McCausland, of
Regiua. powerfully voiced the demand of the west for a better postal service. A universal cry, he
said, had gone up about the inelll-
cieucy of the postal service. The
Ottawa people were slow moving,
and seemed to be utterly unable
to grasp the wesUirn conditions.
Through a wanl of postal supervision many towns had suffered
greatly. He suggested that It
would be a good idea for the government to appoint a supervisor
to advise on Ihe wants of the people of the west. The trouble lay
in the west being too far front the
centre of the postal system for
them to know what was required.'
"This discussion was general,
aud Mr. Dowsett, of Edmonton. ,
said that the creation of a surplus
tn this direction under such conditions us prevail In the west is ridiculous.
"Another Etlmonton man said
that the postal service of that city
wus such lhat It takes two days
for a letter to cross the street.
"Reviewing this question reasonably uud Impartially, neither
the Bulletin nor any other Journal
on behalf of Ibe government can
claim that the country has been
properly dealt wllh by the post
ofllce department."

Highwayman Holds up
Five Stages
Shoots Locks off Express Boxes
and Rifles Contents Under
Masked Covering.
Fresno, Col.. July 9.���A despalch to
the Republican from Bcrenda announces that the highwayman who held
up live stages near Ahwahnee on Saturday nlghl has beeu captured. The
name of the bandit or particulars of the
capture could not be ascertained. Tbe
arrest was made at Wawonn. The first
authentic Information was received
here last night, when J. F. Tlbbelt, of
Riverside, who, with his wife and Miss
Amy Mlchelbackcr, came out of the valley.
The robbery occurred six miles from
the stopping place at Ahwahnee, on the
other side. At that place the road winds
around the side of a hill and comes to
a sudden point. At this point the robber stepped out and ordered W. A.
Palmer, the driver of the first stage, to
stop.    The latter quickly complied.
The highwayman wore a black mask,
and had sacks tied around his feet to
prevent the leaving of any tell-tale
tracks as a clue for a pursuing posse.
He held in his right hand a rifle, and
when he ordered the passengers to
alight, all quickly got oul of the stage
and lined up on the road with their
hands above their heatls. 11. W. Elliott,
from Hermlloso, was ordered to take
the express box from the stage. While
he was waiting for tho other stage to
come up, the robber shot the lock off
the Wells-Fargo box and rifled Its contents. The bandit stopped the other
sfages In the same way, lining the passengers up and keeping them covered
with his gun. When all the passengers.
45 In number, were lined up, the bandit,
with a show of gaiety, selected one
among the young and pretty girls as his
first, assistant, and told her she was appointed collector. She hesitated for a
moment, and then went about the work.
The girl did not come up to tbe robber's
requirements, and he told her she was
a poor highwayman, ordering her to
get Into line and appointing a man to
take her place, requiring him to search
the passengers. An English woman
and her daughter were in the party,
and when the robber approached her
sno dropped ln the road In a dead faint.
He only laughed as he searched her.
Steamer Kuskanook Carried Big Crowd
and Satisfied All.
The first excursion on the new steamer Kuskanook was a very pleasant and
successful one, enjoyed by several hundred citizens. The start from the city
wharf was made a few minutes after 2
p. m.
The first stopping place was Pilot
Bay, where the excursionists had an
opportunity from the deck of the steamer of Inspecting the renovated smelter.
On tho return to Procter some of tho
party landed. The steamer was then
taken for a northern cruise to a Utile
beyond Alnsworth.
Afler another stop to pick up those
al Procter, the trip to the city was
made ami lhe whurf reached at 0:20.
Only occasionally und for short periods
did Captain Gore let his boat go at full
speed to give his passengers an Idea
of whal she could do. In four hours
and a quarter, including four stops,
about 02 miles was covered.
in spite of an occasional downpour
of rain, the trip was thoroughly en-
Joyed by all on board. The cily band
accompanied the excursion and reuder-
od an excellent program.

Excursion Demoralized by Sabbath Ob-
serving Launch.
The hamper lhal they longed for never came!
A sad fale befell a party of Sons of
England yesterday. They wore cast
away on the shores of the West Arm
or Kootenay lake without food or shelter, and with nothing to drink.
An excursion was arranged in three
parties for the purpose ot canvassing
the ranchers along the Bouth shore,
most of whom ate English, for membership in the Nelson lodge of the Sons of
A number left the city on the steamer Moyle at 4:30 a. m. Some landed at
Thirteen-Mile Point, others went to
Procter, to return In a rowboat to the
point. The remainder were to leave
Nelson in a launch with provisions for
the whole parly and rendezvous at
The advance guard did Its work well,
and secured fifteen new subscribers.
Elated with their success, aud with
their appetites whetted by a long morning spent in the sun, they returned to
the point eager for the good things
they knew would be there. Their succors had not arrived, and did not arrive,
though they waited until tbe arrival of
the Crow boat. They remembered
with regret the numerous Invitations
to lunch they had declined for the sake
of keeping their tryst.
Meanwhile the launch party, ln a
hired launch, were stranded at Five-
Mile point. The Sabbath observance
bill seemed to have become miraculously retroactive. There was no apparent
defect In the machinery, but if simply
refused to work. The party had plenty
to eat and drink except for one member, who had the misfortune to be a
total abstainer, aud required a cup of
After trying In vain all day to get
Iheir launch machinery to work, the
voyageurs got out their oars and put
about to return to the city. Then the
wheels began to revolve and the launch
made good time.

Mob Dig up Stones From
the Streets
Holy Synod Forbidden to Publish
Tracts or  Take Sides
in Struggle.
8t. Petersburg, July 9.���Political demonstrations, during which the crowd
carried red flags and sang revolutionary songs, occurred in many places In
Si. Petersburg yesterday afternoon and
night, necessitating the interference of
the police and military patrols. Street
cars were held up and their occupants
were compelled to uncover and salute
the red (lags. This monstrous affair
happened near the Moscow railway station:
An officer, later Identified as Lieutenant Thorn, made a revolutionary
speech to a crowd of 2,000 people. A
detachment of police attempted to disperse the assemblage, but the people
armed themselves with stones dug up
from the streets and beat off the police
and squadron of Cossacks. Eventually
the Cossacks were reinforced, and fired
a blank volley in tbe air, whereupon
the rioters fled Into neighboring courts.
Only a few persons were seriously Injured, but Thorn was arrested and taken to the fortress. A meeting which
was addressed by orators from a window of the constitutional station, near
the Democratic club, was dispersed by
mounted gendarmes, during which several persons were wounded with sabres,
and a performance at the People's Palace waB broken up, the audience singing "The Marseillaise" as they dispersed.
The guards on the mail wagons are
now armed with rifles, owing to the Increasing number of attacks made on
these vehicles. Six more newspapers

Landlords from the provinces where
agrarian disorders are occurring are
flocking into Moscow and St. Petersburg, and are appealing for troops to
protect their property, without which
they declare It Is Impossible for them
to live on their estates.
Some of the papers regard General
Trepoff's announcement ln favor of a
ministry composed of constitutional
democrats as a sham death-bed repentance, designed to give the emperor and
court a breathing spell, while others
consider it to be a confirmation of tbe
report that Trepoff has fallen from favor and Is trimming his sails to the
prevailing breezes.

It is easily seen, therefore, that if tbe
(i, T. p. was lo have a \\. stern l< rml
nus and a harbor on the Pacific coast,
the only method ol securing such privileges would be by tho purchase of Lhe
necesaary  land.
Thf northwestern coast of BrltUh
Columbia Is wild land, unsurvoyed aim
uninviting for ordinary purposes, being
ricli, so far as is known, chiefiy in Umber and mineral wealth. After exhausting lis resources in attempting to secure a free grant of land for railway
purposes, the t;. T. P. was forced to tho
necessity uf mahlng purchase of the
foreshore and terminal area thai was
indispensable to its |dans. There are
three classes ol lands for sale under
the government regulations of this province, Their Specification Is definite,
and they fall under three valuations
per acre, according lo the nature uml
location of lho (toll.   Wild hinds usually
worthless for agricultural purposes nro
sold ai one dollar per ftcroi Other
prices are for areas ai iwo dollars, and
Still others ai five dollars per acre. The
<i. T. !'. purchased lands in the lira
class as an ordinary business transaction, because thai happened to ho the
class or land wanted ai tlie point where
they decided to lix their western terminus. Any other person could have purchased the same hinds for the same
money. There could he no possible Increment from these lands, or no way
hy which they could be made to Increase in value except as they were
made available for some such inirpose
as that uf the (.!. T. P. The government,
after steadfastly refusing to grant any
lauds lo the <1. T. I'. as a bonus, sold it
the necessary area as a straight business transaction. Tlie government, iii
addition lo this sale, with a wise view
io the future rise in land values which
would ensue from railway construe
tion, reserved each quarter section of
the laud and each fourth thousand feel
ot the foreshore. Consequently, whatever rise in values may accrue from
railway construction will he equitably
shared in hy the province of British Co
That is substantially all that was discovered hy a long, exhaustive and exhausting investigation which took place
tii the instance of the leader of Ihe op
position and his faithful Friday, Oliver.
The loud lament of the Dally News
and other opposition papers is that the
government did nut deal directly with
the <;. T. P., hut wllh ii Mr. Bodwell ol
Victoria. It Is the usual eiisiorn for
corporations, and even for individuals,
lo employ some one lu acl as a uihhlh -
man on all proposed purchases. Thai
is a common practice, as it leaves the
principals on both shies free lo pursue
Iheir ordinary vocations without distraction. Tluil ihe fl. T. P. did so shows
Iheir good business sense, and that the
government of lhe province did not
deal wiih the duly accredited representative of lhe ti. T P. no one has dared
to suggest, unless it he to perveri tbe
facts and mislead the people for political purposes.
When this is all said, however, (here
remains one more question lo he an
BWered���a question which will readily
BUggesI Hseir io ihe average mind, nnd
which Is as easily answered. This is
the question; if there was nothing
wrong with lhe Ka.ien island hind sale,
why do lhe opposition press seek lo
make so much capital oul of the tran-
snclion. and why was there an official
Investigation? The answer Is that Iho
opposition leader, counselled by Mr.
���lohn Oliver, thought he saw a chance
lo gain a modicum uf notoriety hy seeking io persuade the country that ho
was looking closely after its interests.
Whether the opposition was honest or
dishonest in asking for an investigation need not now he discussed. The
ract is, tluil after wearisome weeks,
nothing of any public interest was ello-
lled, save the foot that a good deal had
lieen made. Then there followed the
sensational senndul-iiiongering of Ihe
Liberal press of tbe province, the coining of such phrases as "band of adventurers, male and female," with other
baseless insinuations and henrlless
charges. The explanation of the whole
disreputable plot lies in the fact lhal the
Opposition press fell nn obligation to
protect lhe leader of Ihe opposition
from the scathing denunciation that
would have followed his senseless conduct in asking for an Investigation. By
keeping up their clamor and repeating
their unscrupulous charges, the opposition press has sought to draw oh* Iho
attention of the public from their utler
helplessness aud Incapacity both In and
outside of ilie house. Thai is all there
i:. in ihe attempt to raise a sensation
abOUl lho Kaien island sale.
Th.- Dallj N'ew,, in an editorial re-
vlew ol Finance Mlnh Ler Tatlow s tin
mini statement, has this lo say:
"Oi course, it is easy enough t" show
thai the surpluses have been obtained
by increasing taxation on the one hand
ami by curtailing public expenditures
on die olher."
We hum our readers will pardon tlie
lapse Into colloquialism, hut as a criticism of a financial statement from th.'
provincial minister, "wouldn't thai jar
>uu'.'" A finance minister is in inoreas
ilie revenues of the province, hut he
musi nol Increase taxation, lie must
show a growing ��� ui plus from ft ar lo
year, bul Im musl tiol decrease, expenditure.    What   is  Ihe  poor   man   in  do?
We   suppose    LhO    .New:.    wiilM   BUggeSl
thai la1 Open a mini, oi thai ho counter'
it-n coin, or lhal he discover some oc-
miu way io maintain ihe balance between iho rationnl Income ol a province
and lis rational oxpendlturos. Perhaps
ih< llnance minister should decrease
lhe taxes and increase lhe oxpcdituru,
and mill show a surplus on ihe right
side of ids balanco sheet.
Tluil ihe province has lost over $250,-
(mo from Its share of Lhe Chinese rov.
hug tax, iiini still meota iis expend!
tures, is sure!) something to he proud
ni. Whal ;i p'rotty mis up we should
have in provincial finances ii the oppo
Billon were jn charge, and would carrj
out their suggestion for increasing the
revenue and decreasing ihe expediture!
When ihis is lhe mosi thai can he said
by captious iimi fractious opposition
critics, it is surely time for congratulations on ill! sides.
The News continues to refer to this
paper as "a local apologia! for lhe Me
Bride government," if the News thinks
i' can play the snob with this paper,
we will shortly leach il that it is aboul
as much mistaken iis it usuallj is iu
its political editorials.
Since the Liberals have made ihe
postal department pay, we respectfully
request thai they Immediately decrease
flu- taxation, increase their postal expenditure and still show a balance ou
the righl side uf iheir ledger.
Rare Statesmanship.
Even before confederation was an accomplished fact rare statesmanship was
displayed in Canada by her prince of
statesmen, Sir John A. Macdonald,-who
in the Seigniorial Tenure Act and ihe
Secularization of lhe clergy reserves
settled fur all time to come in this coutu
try vexed issues almosl wholly analogous lo those of the Irish land question
and that of the pari played hy a slate
church in lhe BCheme of national education. These are questions in Imperial
politics ihat have vexed successive parliaments in Britain lor over 5u years,
find Ihey are apparently no nearer act-
tlemenl today than they were then, ai
though administration a iter adminls
l tilt ion made shipwreck upon them;
but iu Canada we have been saved

Works Returns.
The Colonial of Saturday saym
Hon, it. K. tti-een returned yesterday
from u three-weeks' visit lo the Cariboo
iilmrlct.   Mr. Qreen drove from   Asli-
oniii, oalllug   iii all the   inuiii road-
lioimes at Bullion, Ljin siii-l Forks, ami
thenoe Journeyed   over   the iraii   to
Kelthley ..-rook.
At Ajheroli in- louiiii tbingi general.
ij in a bualneia way particularly good.
Ail freight im warded io initi pan ot
tho northern Interior an a matter ol
course passes through Ashcroft, and at
iin- presanl time tin- road Is alive with
trelghl  Maine,  loaded  with maohl 'y
and mining supplies, u great portion ot
which la going Into Bullion, where .1. 11.
iiuii..,in. niutiaiier oi Lhe Cariboo n>-
iliuiilio Consolidated Coniuaay, Is doing
a greal deal of work,
When Halts',I as lo the nature of the
work lu whu.li Mr. IIoIikuii i.-i al present
engaged. Mr. ureen saiii lu- hud on band
a big scheme ot bringing water autn-
Chun lor his operations ou the property
that, has been acquired hy the Guggenheim*. Mr. iisih.-ioti is certainly demonstrating his faith, as well as thai ol bis
principals, in iho richness ot Qarlboo
as ii hydraulic tsolil mine venture, flu
lu ul lhe present time Hpcmling a great
deal of money in connection with ins
Mr. Qreen was given to understand
Ihai Mr. llohsons freight hill alone al-
ready this year amounts io between
ti'GAM ami Jlou.iiuo. In; is uow constructing ililelies lo bring water from
Spanish lake, ami when completed and
an adequate supply Obtained, there will
be no question as to whal the result
will he���a very large profit lor tin; syu-
ilieale, wlio are the owuers of several
properties to he operated.
Mr. tlreen speaks very emphatically
of tne good work Mr. llohson is doing,
and states that he deserves good credit
from the people ami ihe province.
"tinder the new conditions," says Mr.
Qreen, 'it will not he very long before
the position of Cariboo will rank
amongst thi- salest and most profitable
Investments in the world."
As regards Kelthley creek, the visitor
noticed ilm number of properties which
are being worked ai a protit. While
there Mr. Qreen was shown some fine
samples of gold taken Irom different
workings, 'ihai old Stand-by, Mr. Holier! Uootiand. among others, Is one ol
the many gentlemen who aie making
fair prolit   from  the  workings  in lhat
Leaving Kelthley creek, Mr. tlreen
vlsiled in turn yuesnel, dlethiey and
Baikervllle. and found all along the
Hue evidences ol prosperity, the- people
having every tallh in the ricbuess of
their individual claims aud lhal part
ol the district
At Uarkervtlle, lu company with Samuel Hodgers icx-M. P. P.), Mr. Ureen
visited lhe old hisinricai workings on
Williams creek, aud wus very much
Interested in Inspecting claims that iu
ihe past had yielded millions oi dollars iu gold io the pioneer placer millers. He was glad lo see that a number
oi Ihe benches hist worked by lhe pioneer miners are now being worked under new and modern conditions, and
nun are demonstrating iheir faith in
putting money into the enterprise.
During ihe reiitrn trip Mr, Qreen waa
fortunate iu meeting Mr, Bailey, cugi-
net i in charge ol the La i-'oiiiiiiu.i
property, situated in the once famous
Lightning Creek district
Mr. Qreen was accompanied during
the whole trip hy Mr. !���'. C. Gamble,
provincial works engineer, ihey had
the pleasure ol descending a abaft and
goiug through several drifts, which
were opening into rich, new gravels under stream.
Tin- general management ot this
seems to he carried on iu a very Hun-.,
ough and business-like manner, and
Mr. tlreen believes, like lln manager,
thai when they strike the richer gravels
up stream, they will he amply repaid
for all the labor expended.
.Mr. (liven adds lhat Cariboo will
again demonstrate a remarkable progress, and capital economically expend-
ed will reap a rich reward. He was
surprised to lind so much open and arable laud in that pot lion ot ihe province,
and also very much Impressed with the
possibilities of the Cariboo as a ranching district, and is now surprised to
lind that the people do nol realize the
possibilities ol the exploitation in this
province along these lines, 'lho farms
and rani ins were a revelation lo hliu.
and, he believes, would he to thousands
ii they went to sei' them.
.Mr. tlreen states lhal nowhere In
British Columbia can one lind ".nn miles
ol" road like tin' Cariboo road, along
which there lire so many stopiiiu:;
lu connection with Mr. Green's visit
to the Cariboo, Mr. Gamble inspected
the road, and. taken altogether, it is in
good condition.
Beginning at the Right End.
Fifty German edilors sailed from
llremerhuven for London on Tuesday,
.Mine llllh. on Ibe Kron 1'rlnz Wllhelm.
They were to be Ibe guests of the Anglo .German friendship committee, Eighteen Berlin papers are represented, and
there are edilors of lite most Influential organs of Frankfort, Munich, Leipzig, Dresden and a dozen oilier Gorman
towns, while a Viennese editor is also
with the party. The German papers, in
leading articles, have warmly approved
the object of bringing England and Qor-
many Inlo more friendly relationship.
The king's Invitation lo the editors to
visit Windsor Castle bus given special
pleasure,    This strikes us ns a very
sensible ami far*sigbtsd policy on tlm
part of i hose'good Englishmen who are
working to bring about a better statu
of feeling between the peoples of the
two greal nations. The German press,
fettered though U Is lo some extent Is
still u mighty moulder of pobllc opinion within the (lerinan empire, ami
withoul doubt after this visit a kindlier tone toward llriiuin will show itself in the columns of the papers reprt -
seined. A very few Indeed have vislti-d
Englishmen at home withoul coming
away with a better opinion of them,
uml finding it harder to think menu
and unworthy things of them. Ii is especially pleasing to see our beloved
King Edward VII. still playing his part
a:, pi'.i maker among the nations with
consummate grace und tact. The empire will never know how a great a
debt n owes him for his tinlqui' ser
ttoes  along this  line.
